New Year, New Shows and a Book!

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, New Media and Tech, and Pods and Presos

When it comes to not keeping my blog updated, I’m in good company around the Internet. And yet, I feel badly about it. The iOS 12 edition of my book, iOS Access for All is out in the world. Please go get one. The ePub and Apple Books editions (which are identical, but for the fact that Apple Books takes 30 percent) are on the virtual shelves. The PDF version, of which I’ve spoken lovingly…

Podcast Roundup: Parallel Gathers Steam

Posted in Announcements, and Podcasting

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with automating new processes. At work, I’ve long automated text-processing tasks, but I’m expanding that to web work, and building workflows around podcast production. What I have yet to tackle is my tendency to forget about this lovely little blog. If you wonder why I do, perhaps take a listen to some podcasts I’ve been making, and where I’ve been appearing. More of that is on the way when the book comes out…

iOS Access for All, iOS 12 Edition is on its Way

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, and General Store

I just announced that the iOS 12 edition of my book will be available later this fall, and that you can get it free if you buy a copy of the iOS 11 edition between now and the release date for the new book.

Podcast Roundup: New Parallel Episodes, Guest Shots, and Maccessibility’s Return

Posted in Announcements, and Pods and Presos

Platforms, Web sites and social networks occasionally overwhelm me, and I occasionally feel as though I’m overwhelming the various outlets I use with announcements of the things I’m up to. So this is a roundup of shows I’ve made and been a part of lately, because I neglected to post them when they happened. Parallel #2 features my guest, audio description pro Valerie Hunter. Clockwise #255 is the most beautifully short tech podcast I know…

Listen: Apple Brings Everyone Can Code To Some Kids In Austin

Posted in Access and Disability, Announcements, and New Media and Tech

I had the pleasure of watching as 17 kids who attend Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired learn a bit about Swift Playgrounds, the environment Apple created to teach people how to code in the Swift language. Even better, I made a radio story about it for Texas Standard. I’m really proud of it. I’m less proud that I forgot I had a blog, so I didn’t get around to telling you about…

Pee Dee Eff

Posted in Announcements

If you listen to me on podcasts when I’m feeling frisky, you know that making the PDF version of my books does not bring me joy. But hey, I do make them, they are good, and you can get yours right here, right now, along with the ePub version, which is my favorite. Also, there’s a whole lot of podcast audio coming your way from me in the next couple of weeks. You can watch…
